A typical day at Jelly Bear Childcare

All children are unique and activities are planned with the children’s individual interests in mind.

Our daily routine helps the children to feel safe because they can predict what is coming next, even if they are too little to tell the time.

7.30am Opening time

Good morning Jelly Bears! The children have a range of interesting toys and activities to choose from.

7.45am Breakfast time

Breakfast is a choice of cereals, porridge, toast and fresh fruit.

8.30am Time for the school run

This is a pleasant walk along the River Wandle; we often see ducklings in the spring time. In the autumn the children love to splash in the puddles and hunt for snails


8.45am Arrive at Victor Seymour Infants School and Harris Academy Junior School
9am  Morning fun

During term time we stay within the Carshalton area and enjoy the following outings:

·         Growing vegetables at the allotments

·         Changing our books at the library

·         Feeding the ducks and squirrels at Westcroft park

·         Running around the playground

·         Stay and play sessions at the children’s centre

·         Experiencing the sensory garden at the ecology centre

·         Jumping and climbing at soft play

Going out into the local community gives children first hand experiences of the world around them. Safety on outings is of utmost importance. A full risk assessment has been completed for every place we visit and these are available for parents to read at any time.

11am Lunch time

Back to the house for a cooked lunch. The children enjoy eating together and talking about their morning. Lunch is followed by story and song time.

12pm Rest time

A nap for the Jelly babies, and quiet activities such as painting, puzzles and stories for those who just need time to unwind.

Babies  rest in cosy travel cots, with their favourite comforter from home.

2pm Snack time and Free Play

Time to refuel with a snack then the children can choose from a range of toys, enjoy an arts and crafts session or listen to stories.

We leave for the school run at 2.55pm.

3.25pm Free play

Back at the house children can bake, colour or play with the toys. They may choose to burn off some energy in the garden  A quiet area is provided for children with homework.

In the school holidays we visit new and exciting places such as the farm, Box Hill and Crystal Palace Park, often taking a picnic with us.

4.30pm  Tea time

Relaxed buffet style tea satisfying even the fussiest eaters then more time to play.

After a long day time it’s time to relax with some children’s television or quiet activities.
